First adoption of the year!

Our first adoption of 2012 couldn't be off to a better start!




After a really difficult adoption that didn't go through at the end of 2011, it's been a special delight to watch this older, first-time-parents-Italian-couple, literally race after our dear JG (age 5) as he introduces them to his home and life up till now!




Leaving the old, passing to the new...


Their first meeting was yesterday, December 5. Since beginning paperwork, this couple has waited over 5 years for their child!

Just a few minutes into the first meeting, JG had a rough moment as he worried if his new parents were already going to leave him, and also realizing that he wasn't leaving to go with them that very day.



Looking through his picture album while Tio David films with the couple's camera.




Pray for our dear JG's continual adaptation to his new family, and the accompanying changes in language, culture, and eventually environment when they travel to Italy together sometime at the end of February, Lord willing!
